Teen Wolf 3×02: Chaos Rising
This episode is all about Isaac retrieving his memory, so Derek and Scott are able to save Erica and Boyd. They try several methods from Peter sticking his nails in Isaac’s neck to Isaac taking an ice cold bath (Yikes!). Allison decides to investigate the bruise on her own, when Derek doesn’t believe it’s a clue in the search of Erica and Boyd. In the meantime Stiles is about to lose his virginity, but before he returns from finding a condom his girlfriend is kidnapped from her own basement. Everything leads up to becoming the new Ocean’s Eleven crew and breaking into a vault to save Boyd and Erica. But it seems that Erica passed away in a janitor’s closet and Boyd got company from Derek’s sister Cora. The only complication is that the Alphas set up a trap for Derek, because the bank vault is made from a certain stone which kept out the full moon and made the werewolves inside crazy killing machines. Luckily Allison breaks the mountain ash circle, so Derek and Scott survives. Only problem is that there are two crazy werewolves on the loose in Beacon Hills (that’s Lydia’s cue to scream like a lunatic!) to be continued…
+ Peter entering Derek’s loft was awesome. The guy has style, plus it was great comedic moment.
+ Another funny moment was when Stiles went looking for condoms to hook up with the girl he once went to nursery school with, but the only thing he found was XXL condoms and he totally freaked out. His face was priceless. After the ridiculous start of their hook up, everything unfortunately became kind of creepy when she was taken from her own basement.
+ I laughed so hard during Stiles and Derek bit about punching through a wall. I don’t know which part was funnier; Derek’s face while punching Stiles or Stiles calling Derek a “big, bad wolf”.
+ I know everyone adores Sterek, but what about Peter and Stiles?! They had some great dialogs this week.
+ It’s good to see Allison going out on her own after Derek dismissed her bruises. Her character is far more interesting when she fights back instead of waiting around like a damsel in distress.
+ Isaac is really growing on me as a character. He has got some interesting storylines up his sleeve I think. I’m glad he gets a chance to step up since Jackson (Colton Haynes) is gone. He did a great job on the ice tub scene.
+ Really enjoyed the class of lacrosse coach Finstock turned business teacher. His scenes are never boring.
– No, why is the vet’s daughter on the Alpha’s side? What the hell, Miss Morell?! Should we start doubting the vet too? It would suck if his character would be fishy too. Although I hope Miss Morell has some ulterior motive to help out the Alphas.
– Aww, Erica is dead! I never cared much for Boyd, but Erica was a cool gal to have around. You will be missed girl!
– I wonder if the mystery girl from last week is really dead, because that would be a bummer. Although it was quite shocking that Derek had to fight off his own sister.
+/- What the hell is going on with Lydia?! Her continuing vague episodes worry me. Why isn’t Stiles trying to dig up dirt on that? Although it was an awesome end of this episode to let Lydia/Holland scream her lungs out for the millionth time. – 7,5/8
Teen Wolf 3×02 quotes
Heather: “You’ve never done it before either?” Stiles: “Turned 17? No, not yet, no.”
Peter: “F.Y.I., yes, coming back from the dead has left my abilities somewhat impaired, but the hearing still works. So I hope you’re comfortable saying whatever it is that you’re feeling straight to my face.” Derek: “We don’t like you. Now shut up and help us.” Peter: “Fair enough.”
Stiles talking about Peter: “Could someone kill him again, please?”
Stiles: “What do you… what do you think you’re gonna do, Derek? You gonna punch through the wall?” Derek: “Yes, Stiles, I’m gonna punch through the wall.” Stiles: “Okay, okay, big guy. Let’s see it. Let’s see that fist. Big, old fist. Make it, come on. Get it out there. Don’t be scared. Big, bad wolf. Yeah, look at that. Okay, see this? That’s maybe 3 inches of room to gather enough force to punch through solid co… He could do it.”
Stiles: “I can’t take waiting around like this, you know? It’s nerve-wracking. My nerves are wracked. They’re severely wracked. Wracked.” Peter: “I could beat you unconscious and wake you when it’s over.”
Stiles: “They’re an Alpha pack, right? So shouldn’t they have a lair?” Peter: “They’re werewolves not Bond villains.” Stiles: “Wait a sec. Wait a sec. Maybe they’re living there. You know? Like, maybe the bank vault reminds them of their little wolf dens.” Peter: “Wolf dens?” Stiles: “Yeah, wolf dens. Where do you live?” Peter: “In an underground network of caves hidden deep in the woods.” Stiles: “Whoa, really?” Peter: “No, you idiot. I have an apartment downtown.”
Stiles: “And why wait around for the full moon, huh? Why not just kill them whenever they want to?” Peter: “Maybe they think it’s poetic.” Stiles: “They’ve already had three full moons to be poetic.” Peter: “And here you’ve only had one full hour to be so annoying…”
